Our production process
Each of our products goes on a long and impactful journey before it is ready to be sold. And every one of our items touches the life of at least one prisoner or prison leaver in some way.
Our needlework kits are put together in our prison workshops before being distributed from our London hub to our wonderful volunteers. These inspirational supporters teach people in prison the necessary skills to craft each piece. The completed stitchwork is then returned to us, to ensure it meets our exacting standards, before finally being sent back into a prison to be 'made up', turning it into the final product (e.g. stuffing and adding zips to cushions).
In total, this process can take up to 200 hours and over 70,000 stitches (per piece!)
We know that every single one of our products boosts self-esteem, builds confidence, has a positive impact on a stitcher’s mental health, and gives them the opportunity to transform their lives.
By purchasing a product, you become a part of that journey.

Support our work
Provides a prisoner with the materials for one tapestry cushion (100 hours of creative activity).
Will enable us to continue providing paid, creative and productive work to even more prisoners around the UK, helping them to build a brighter future.
Sponsors a prisoner to train as a volunteer 'class coordinator', teaching and mentoring other prisoners.
Covers the volunteer costs of a stitching class in prison.
Pays for the training, materials and support for one prisoner for an entire year, helping them to rebuild a meaningful, independent,crime-free life.
By giving prisoners hope that transformation is truly possible, they can envision a meaningful life after release. But nobody tells the story of how Fine Cell Work has helped them better than the prisoners themselves:“Stitching allows me to use a totally different part of my brain and personality. I can move away from the more difficult reflections and anxieties and feel creative and purposeful. This means I no longer feel that my life has come to a halt and that I am of no use to anyone else.”

thank you to the persons who made the facemasks I purchased recently. Beautifully made with such attention to detail. I am so glad to have discovered fine cell works as a source for face coverings. In my opinion, these face coverings really are the best available, by far.
Gorgeous blue floral face mask in lovely colors. Very nicely made and lined in a. contrasting dark blue, I have had so many compliments when wearing and have always made sure that I mention where I got it. It is not just a lovely face covering, it is also comfortable, cleverly designed, easy to breathe in and actually very flattering. I am delighted with it.
These face masks are beautiful in so many ways! Beautiful fabric, beautifully made! I’m also pleased that making the masks have given someone something to do when they most needed it. I’m proud of my mask and will tell everyone where it came from! Thank you so much for your time and effort
Thank you very much for the very beautiful and wonderfully easy to use and clean masks,
The masks were beautifully made but unfortunately there was no name on the label for me to express my appreciation
